I bought my crib

What else should I buy before the baby comes?

It's a BOY! We have a lot of boy clothes from newborn to 12 months. We are going to cloth diaper, and breast feed.

  • Car seat! The hospital won't let you leave without one.

  • I'd suggest a baby swing, only for I find it to be a life saver when I need to get something done and he's been fed, changed, and is just being a butt. lol. My son is 5 months old now, and is napping in it right now.

  • Definitely a car seat, get even more cloth diapers for spit up rags, a swing, diaper bag (if u dont have one), i'd suggest bottles for if you pump you can put it in there for on the go, a breast pump

  • Sling or carrier, lanolin cream, breast pads, the stretchiest nursing bra you can find, a pack of disposable diapers just in case (newborns go through a lot of diapers), diaper bag, boppy pillows are super handy for nursing, bouncy seat

  • Even though you are breastfeeding, I would recommend investing in either Dr. Browns or Playtex Drop In bottles, you always need to be prepared incase breastfeeding doesn't work out, plus you will need bottles to feed if you pump. These I have found are the two best brands/types of bottles. I would recommend burp clothes, bibs, receieving blankets, socks, a swing, a gilder, a mobile, a net for bathing (they are so much better than baby bathtubs), diaper bag, diaper rash cream, safety items, high chair, and I think that is about it...
